Generally, travel by air is considered to be a safe means of transportation, but when accidents do occur they often result in wrongful death or serious injuries including a potential burn injury, spinal cord injury or possibly atraumatic brain injury. While smaller scale accidents involving private aircrafts are more frequent than large passenger or commercial aircraft accidents, the serious injury and devastation to the individuals involved and their family members is still unimaginable.
The owner and operator of the aircraft may be liable, along with manufacturers or maintenance companies; even the federal government can have some responsibility in a plane crash.
While many simply attribute liability for plane crashes to pilot error, or hazardous weather conditions, an airplane accident can often be attributed to the negligence of multiple responsible parties.
